News Release
Portland man wins $1,000 a week for life - 04/12/18

April 12, 2018 - Salem, Ore. – A Portland man won the top prize of the Win for Life game and will take home $1,000 per week for life.  

Marlon Stockton of Portland will now receive $1,000 per week for life, thanks to his big Oregon Lottery win. He matched all four numbers for the Saturday, April 7 drawing. He purchased the ticket at a Fred Meyer on Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway in Portland. Stockton said he normally plays Keno but heard about Win for Life and decided to try it.

Stockton opted to take $52,000 per year as an annual payment, rather than the $1,000 a week option.

Fred Meyer will receive a retailer sales bonus of $13,000, which is 1-percent of the 25 years of prizes Stockton will receive.

Proceeds from Oregon Lottery sales help fund public education, parks, economic development and watershed projects. During the 2015-17 biennium, more than $22 million of Lottery dollars went to economic development projects in Multnomah County, where Stockton played.

The Oregon Lottery reminds players to always sign the back of their Lottery tickets, regardless of the game. In the event of winning a jackpot, they should consult with a trusted financial planner or similar professional to develop a plan for their winnings. Prize winners of more than $50,000 are advised to contact the Lottery office and schedule an appointment to claim their prize.

Since the Oregon Lottery began selling tickets on April 25, 1985, it has earned more than $11 billion for economic development, public education, state parks and watershed enhancements. For more information on the Oregon Lottery visit www.oregonlottery.org
